IF IT TOOK NIXON TO GO TO CHINA,WOULD IT TAKE A RAFSANJANI TO GO TO WASHINGTON ?
Reuters is pushing a story that the recent coup via a rigged election by the Khameini-Rafsanjani-Pasdaran hardline clique in Iran actually bodes well for a new era of detente between Iran and the United States.
It would be interesting to know who is leaking this analysis. I'm highly skeptical though I concede the dynamic is not theoretically impossible. Overall it strikes me as either wishful thinking or an attempt to push a reconsideration of current policy by someone on either side.
( Hey - three Nixon references in two days ! A new Zenpundit record ! )
